Lava Beds NM - 07/05/16 - Tulelake, CA

Tuesday – July 5, 2016
Lava Beds National Monument
Indian Well Campground
Tulelake, California


On this segment of our West Coast adventure our destination is Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. Since the distance from Truckee, California to Crater Lake is about 360 miles, we plan to do a one-night layover at the Indian Well Campground in the Lava Beds National Monument near Tulelake, California. As we entered the Lava Beds National Monument, we were intrigued by the surrounding landscape filled with pitch black lava rocks.

After we got settled into our campsite, at the Indian Wells campground, we checked the weather forecast for Crater Lake National Park. The forecast for the coming weekend showed rain with daytime temperatures in the middle 50’s to low 60’s and nighttime temperatures in the high 30’s. We decide we will stay at the Lava Beds National Monument through Sunday, where we will enjoy warmer temperatures in the middle 70’s and sunny days.

Tomorrow another adventure begins.
